1. Fender MIM Strat all customized into oblivion (custom neck, neck pup is some hot dimarazio thing, mid pup is vintage 70s strat, bridge pup is Seymour Duncan Lil 59. Recent experiment with 1 meg pots is officially a failure however.
2 60s gibson skylark with jensen alnico speaker, (for quiet time playing) or 70s GS-2000 earth amp, also all customized into freakishess (with 15 inch speaker + tweeter) for loud playing (which I basically never do anymore).
3 Roland guitar synth/midi unit (GK 2A is the midi pup)
4. Lotta cables lying around, god knows they're all cheap n' crumby.... Santa: I need cables..., Picks are dunlop stubby's or jazz... 2 mil thick or or more please. Increasingly play fingerstyle though. Strings, Thomasfeld-Instik swing series... 1st strings I've ever played that make a really noticeable postive difference in the sound of an electric guitar.
5. The whole point of this set-up is a desperate attempt to get a relatively inexpensive solidbody electric thru rock n roll tube amps to sound like a carved top hollow body thru some $50,000 dollar amp custom-made by 'insert German name here'
As you might imagine, it doesn't quite work.
